The First of April's coming. Time for some trolling, mathematicians!

Who's the biggest \(\Large{\color{Green}{\textbf{Troll}}}\) on Brilliant?

Putting up a troll DP ain't making you the biggest troll, **Prasun Biswas**, you need to prove it. Claiming yourself to be a big Kadoobly Booist, or whatever it is, doesn't make you one, **Agni**, you need to prove it. And again, who was the **King Of Trolls**? Yet another chance to prove it.

In short, the participant who posts the most trolling problem wins. Here go the rules:-

\(\bullet\) The Contest starts on the \(20\)th of March, and ends on \(29\)th March. Late submissions will not be accepted.

\(\bullet\) Every member is allowed only \(1\) entry. You can update your entry by editing your comment, or deleting it and adding a new one.

\(\bullet\) Results will be announced on \(31\)st March.

\(\bullet\) For identification and to warn those who don't want to troll, please put the following line in the end of every problem. \(\text{This is an entry in the Troll King Contest}\)

\( \bullet\) Since these are troll problems, do not give them levels. You can use topics if they are suitable.

\(\bullet\) The entry with the maximum value of \(Upvotes + \sqrt{Downvotes}\) will be declared the winning entry. The member who posted that entry will be the Winner of the Troll King Contest.

\(\bullet\) Please **Upvote** all the entries you like, and do **NOT** Downvote any entries. (LOL Trolls used to downvote comments unnecessarily.)

Your turn . . . Don't forget to enter, like and reshare so that it reaches everyone. :D

Best of luck!

Nope. Satvik does not want downvotes. So , 'if someone hates a problem or does a downvote intentionally', for such situations to be avoided , the haters or such pranksters would not downvote , since it will increase the points of the contestant due to + sign. However , some people have downvoted.

Example if A gets 3 upvotes and 1 downvote , whereas B gets 3 upvotes and 2 downvotes , then B will win. As simple as that.

The scoring system is fine, but the problem is with "troll questions". They should make atleast little bit of sense.

PIace your finger perpendicular to the nearest fIat surface and trace the path of the girl's spinning Ieg; cIock-wise or counter-cIock-wise? Post above.

This is n0t an entry to the Troll K\(\sqrt{-1}\)ng Contest.

Log in to reply

About 25-30 sec clockwise then 10-15 sec anticlockwise acc to me.

Log in to reply

I think you're wrong!Try to time it again,and I'm sure you'll have different results.

Log in to reply

Great . Do you know how to make a gif like that ?

Log in to reply

Log in to reply

Were my timings correct approximately?

Log in to reply

It really depends on who's watching so I can't really tell . It varies from person to person and depends on the level of concentration with which you are watching it .

This was shown in The Brain Games on National Geographic Channel...

Log in to reply

This is the answer to how many it takes to screw in a light bulb?

Log in to reply

It depends on the observation point. This reminds of the concept of electrons contributing to magnetic moment. When it rotates and revolves, the plane from which clockwise rotation forms the south pole and the latter one forms the north pole and thus they behave as tiny magnets.

P.s - Also, you can see that this is a .gif file and not a .jpg file. As such, the whole "trick" is based on good Adobe Flash skills.

Kaboobly Doowhen he met a girl who said around 80 non-sense things in a minute to describe her.Calvin describes Kaboobly Doo as "It is agnishom-slang for 'It\'s Crap'" but I do not like to put it that way, exactly. I like this discussion

Does Downvotes still count, Cause I have both of them equal.....

Log in to reply

Wow! I have never seen so many downvotes in any discussion so far! I think most people are not reading the rules that giving downvotes also increases the points of contestant. Sharky Kesa is leading with 10 downvotes!

Log in to reply

Or may be some vote up using down votes.

like i did i upvoted those which were awesome and downvoted those which were average coz downvotes count less than upvotes. CHEERS!!

Log in to reply

Exactly ,the person may win by the number of downvotes.

Log in to reply

Well without reasonable doubt, the Troll award goes to Andrei!

Woah, woah, woah, who said this was reasonable?
